“Happiness is not something that comes ready made. It comes from your own actions.”
-The Dalai Lama
Happiness is all in your head!
I know it seems so dezeptively zimple, but there you have it: you think happy, therefore you are happy.
Don’t believe me? Try this: Go make faces at yourself in the mirror. Or if you’re in a really bad mood, growl and bark at yourself.
I understand that we all have different senses of humor, based on our educations, cultures and belief systems. But still.
Just try it – if it doesn’t make you laugh, you likely need a more powerful therapist than a zebra.
Or maybe you just need to go for a walk. Play with your dog. Watch a silly video. Watch the election news. Whatever it takes to crack you up.
The point is, we’ve all gotta take responsibility for our own neurochemistry – naturally.
You’re the only one who knows how you REALLY feel. So it makes sense that you’re also the only one who knows how to make yourself feel better.
Please don’t argue, okay? You KNOW you know.
To prove it, I did a little experiment with a human who’s super, uber, mega, off-the-charts grumpy.
You probably know him/her, so I will not mention any names. Anyway, I convinced this human to try the aforementioned ZeBoTherapy.
I borrowed a friend’s high-resolution galactoscope to take an interior brain image. What you’re looking at is an enlarged photo of the resulting crystals of dopamine – the feel-good neurotransmitter.
From the image, you can see that – like life – happiness is not all black-and-white. It’s as magical and colorful as you are.
The ZeCret: take a little action – and let happiness take care of the rest.
